For to those of you who have cashed in on the best tablet buy we've seen to date, HP just made a move to sweeten the already ridiculous deal: a six-pack of paid webOS apps at no-cost. The apps retail from $0.99 to $14.99 but all of them are free to webOS users in the US until 11:59PM on August 31. The apps, descriptions and promo codes to get them for free are below courtesy of HP:

  • Glimpse (Inglorious Apps, $5, injoj55410gavxv): Amp up your TouchPad multitasking to 11 using this customizable and addictive split-screen interface.
  • Kung Fu Panda 2 Storybook (zuuka, $2.99, eotss76676jjzqr): Enjoy images and voices from Kung Fu Panda 2 right on your TouchPad.
  • Big Boss (Fair Play Labs, $1.99, vfimk09918lngoz): Design your “Boss” – a gigantic monster – and attempt to defeat the brave heroes and powerful wizards of WackyLands.
  • Sparkle HD (10tons Ltd., $4.99, pweuq32135vrbhx): Save Crowberry Woods in this TouchPad version of the popular desktop game.
  • Camera for TouchPad (Keen Studios, $0.99, rijon62171nhvtu): Start snapping away, with options for managing your photos and using them with other TouchPad apps. 
  • Audubon Birds (Green Mountain Digital, $14.99, jjiox66488ddnik): This searchable digital field guide to North American birds offers stunning photography and thrilling (trilling?) bird songs.

The offer expires on the 31st or when HP runs out of "inventory". There's likely a limit on the number of times these codes can be used, so if you're interested click on the link for each app and enter the promo code (in bold) on your TouchPad. If you need help on entering the codes click here.

HP also indicated the next six pack of apps would be out sometime in September. Here's hoping for continued support from HP for its newly expanded webOS user base.

    Any way to snag these apps without having a webOS device on hand? I'm still waiting for HP to ship mine.

    Doesn't look like it...The app catalog website isn't as sophisticated as the Android Market.

    And why does trying to paste in a link make the thing think my comment is spam??? WTF? I've posted on here for years...

    I'm not seeing a way. I had to get out my pad to do it.

    Big Boss is expired already, Camera code worked though. That was fast. :(

    Fuck you, HP.

    Why all the love?

    Because apparently people not in the US who also bought their product aren't good enough

    Getting mad at HP is both ignorant and childish. If you must blame something, the vast minefield that is international and national law would be a good place to start.

    all the codes are spent, thanks for such a limited run HP. As much as I liked webos on my palm pre, i'm ready to get a real os with apps on my firesale touchpad.
